You have yours on hand already?More importantly, mine used Liquid Metal thermal interface between this slug and the processor die - This stuff is made with Gallium, and is kinda nasty (but high in performance, for sure).
I've been planning to use an adapter from ADT, an m.2 to pcie. They have some unique ones and the R43UL would probably work best for my project.Are there any other reasonable suggestions for EGPU boards, more size appropriate to the B18?
Oh, no - Totally, m.2 connections *cannot* handle the PCIe 75W slot power. That's why they add on the molex connector - For input power.@thewizzard1 i don't think it is actually a fan header even though it looks similar (the plastic connector housing is different), so I don't know what it would be rated for and I can't find a datasheet from ADT... They show it being connected to a sata power connector.
They do state the product as being for connecting gpus to m.2 slots, isn't it a little odd if the power connector they added can't handle even a quarter of the expected power?
